It's at least an E350 or F350 dually or whatever ford is calling it's 1 ton vans nowadays. It would probably it from the back with no problem.

I think Ford makes them with 14500 gvwr. Both e350 and E450 but the 450 has the duallys.

I drove there to pick up the van, but it was a lot rougher than I thought it would be. The interior was really rough. The exterior was pretty good but there is some clear coat pealing. The maintenance looks very bad, tranny fluid did not look good , it pulls hard to the right, there is a miss every once in a while. I ended up driving home without it. I thought 15k was to much. Am I right. ???

I would do this to a chevy 1 ton van maybe.....make it a skinny dually with a sneaker......like a mid 2000's 3500 express van.....Id be more comfortable with a vortec 350 or 6.5 with a 4l80 trans instead of the ford setup.....and just leave it white like a work van....maybe with a ladder rack on top.....people will think you are a plumber or electrician.....until it's too late....

This is an awsome repo unit. The couch in the bed even folds into a bed. Loose the lights on top.
